How a New Generation of Politically-Charged Films are Reawakening the Spirit of Italian Neorealism

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything.) It’s difficult to place into words the impact Italian Neorealism has personally had on me. The genre speaks to me on a visceral level. The old Italian films, born out of desperation, still hold up against the blockbusters of today. In an age where authoritarianism is making a comeback, we are witnessing a subconscious reemergence of the formerly communist left-supporte...

(Not So) Famous Firsts: Halloween Edition — Herk Harvey’s “Carnival of Souls”

Halloween gets all the movie nerds excited. This is the season where it becomes not only socially acceptable to watch gory films, but it’s almost mandatory. It’s also the time when people can fight over the most worthless things. (“How can you be a horror fan if you’ve only seen two Dario Argento movies?!”) The best part is how many of those conversations will inspire people to make their own cheap horror films. For decades, horror and science fiction were the only seemingly acceptable genres fo...
